Are You Eligible for the Small Business Health Care Tax Credit?

Posted: September 16, 2011

As the upcoming filing extension tax deadlines approach, the Internal Revenue Service, in partnership with the Department of Health and Human Services, wants to ensure that small employers are taking advantage of the new Small Business Health Care Tax Credit if they are eligible.

"As the filing deadlines approach, we want to make sure that small business owners don't leave any money on the table," said IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman. "Small businesses that offer health insurance should learn about this credit and claim it if they are eligible."

The small business health care tax credit was included in the Affordable Care Act enacted last year. Small employers that pay at least half of the premiums for employee health insurance coverage under a qualifying arrangement may be eligible for the small business health care tax credit. The credit is specifically targeted to help small businesses and tax-exempt organizations that primarily employ 25 or fewer workers with average income of $50,000 or less.
